Fresh from a record 10 million iPhone sales over launch weekend, Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are going on sale in 20 more countries today.

The list of countries that will begin selling the new iPhones from Friday include:

Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey and United Arab Emirates

The devices initially debuted in eight markets, but Apple plans to expand sales to 115 counties before the end of the year. China remains an absentee at this point, which has led to a surge in ‘scalpers’ buying devices in various parts of the world. Things could change soon as China’s state media indicated Apple is close to gaining the final approval needed to begin sales there.
